Respond to Review of Loving Hut
Review: I have gone to this particular location of the Loving Hut twice thus far. The restaurant is located on a strip in what I suppose is the China-town of Orlando, lined with many Chinese restaurants and stores. Plenty of parking available. The restaurant is clean with a moderate-sized seating area with large windows that give an open view of the street. The religious videos of their spiritual leader are played non-stop. The waitress and other workers seem to be genuinely nice and provide excellent customer service. The food, however, is not that great. I ordered quite a few menu items for myself and family on both occasions and was disappointed. While I did enjoy the golden rice, which is their fried rice with tofu bits, I didn't care for the BBQ vegan beef that came on the side. I wasn't excited about the orange yogi rice. The Hawaiian burger didn't have a pineapple as advertised in the ingredients, and was not very "Hawaiian" in flavor at all, but bland and way too tall for anyone's mouth. The best thing about it is that I ended up having an extra patty to spice up and make another burger out of later. lol The burger is served with a side of sweet potato fries that look nothing like the advertised picture but instead are paper thin sliced, overly breaded and oily. The sea baskets which consist of battered vegan shrimp, mushrooms, tofu, sweet potatoes and green beans are also VERY oily and not appetizing at all. I didn't get a chance to taste the spring rolls, but I did taste the sauce and was turned off by it. My brother says he didn't care for the spring rolls himself. For the amount and quality of food, I don't believe the price is really worth it-- especially for the sea basket which will run you around $12 and tax. Overall, if I go back to the restaurant it will most likely only be because I'm tired of the other vegan options around and want to give them another try.
